Science Communication Talk Series

This event is a series of talks and labs aiming at providing inputs on science communication. The event does not expect to be a fully comprehensive course on science communication; however, you will get tools, connections, and inputs which can be deepened in the future if considered of interest. You will learn from experts that will touch on broad topics, such as science and poetry, paper writing science and journalism, social media, and event organization.
At the end of the series, to get the certification, you must attend at least 80% of the total amount of hours, which you can convert into ECTS points (credits) at your institute.
Moreover, for the MCAA Italy Chapter members, an award (prizemoney) will be assigned to the best social media communication developed during the practice lessons.
